Judaism Christianity and Islam : the monotheists by F.E. PetersThe lecture series has particularly two parts: the history connecting the three monotheistic religions and comparison of parallel ideas across the religions. I particularly enjoyed the history as it went continuously from the past into the future in a non-biased fashion. The comparisons were interesting but not sufficiently detailed. It can be difficult to compare religions since you require depth to appreciate any of the religions. At a surface level, they all sound non-sensical. Only after digging deep into them, can one appreciate them. At the end though, I enjoyed the series and went through the surprisingly fast. Only a couple of days :)
How Muslims, Jews and Christians View Creationism
Sacrifice in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam
The sacred texts of revealed religions may be eternal and unchanging, but they are understood and applied by human beings living in time. Christians believed not only that the Jews had misunderstood Scripture, thus justifying the Christian reinterpretation of Jewish Scripture, but that all of Jewish Scripture had to be understood as containing only partial truth. Although early Christian texts and later papal commands had prohibited the persecution and forced conversion of Jews, these doctrines were less carefully observed starting in the 11th century. Heralded by a series of pogrom s in both Europe and the Middle East carried out in the course of the First Crusade, a deeper and more widespread anti-Judaism came to characterize much of European history after This form of anti-Judaism resulted in massacres of Jews, usually at moments of high social tension within Christian communities. One of the best documented of these massacres took place at York, Eng. Before the 11th century the Jews faced little persecution, lived among Christians, and even pursued the same occupations as Christians.
Three of the world's major religions -- the monotheist traditions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam -- were all born in the Middle East and are all inextricably linked to one another. Christianity was born from within the Jewish tradition, and Islam developed from both Christianity and Judaism. While there have been differences among these religions, there was a rich cultural interchange between Jews, Christians, and Muslims that took place in Islamic Spain and other places over centuries. Judaism is the oldest surviving monotheistic religion, arising in the eastern Mediterranean in the second millennium B. Abraham is traditionally considered to be the first Jew and to have made a covenant with God. Because Judaism, Christianity, and Islam all recognize Abraham as their first prophet, they are also called the Abrahamic religions.
Aims and Scope Judaism, Christianity, and Islam - Tension, Transmission, Transformation JCIT brings together innovative volumes exploring the reception and mediation of ideas and practices in the three monotheistic traditions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, from antiquity to the twenty-first century. Monographs, collected works, text editions, and bibliographic databases address their intertwining relations in various historical and geographical contexts. The series is intentionally interdisciplinary, inviting proposals across disciplines dealing with at least two of these three religions. Among the research areas to be studied are, for example, Greek, Hebrew, Syriac, Arabic, Latin, and Ottoman cultural spheres; the Enlightenment and modernity in various contexts; imperialism, colonialism, postcolonialism, and globalization. Attention is given to exegesis and intertextuality, political models and patterns of social order, spiritual symbols and images, scholarly interactions and mystical experiences. The series is relevant to scholars as well as to those interested and engaged in interreligious exchange. User Account Log in Register Help.
